Paramount is relaunching an old franchise worth $1.4 billion with a new movie called Terminator: Genisys releasing what they hope to be three successful films. Set in 2029, the Future War has commenced and human rebels have formed a group because of an evil AI system called Skynet. John Connor (played by Jason Clarke from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) is the head honcho of the resistance, and with him is Kyle Reese (played by Jai Courtney from Divergent), a loyal soldier who grew up in California during the post apocalyptic era. Similar to the original film, Connor assigns Reese to go back to 1984 to save Connor’s mother, Sarah (played by Emilia Clarke from Game of Thrones). Because a Terminator was programmed to kill her, it is vital for her to be saved in order for her to give birth to Connor.
And here’s where there are somewhat possible SPOILERS so don’t say I didn’t warn you!
Entertainment Weekly gives the scoop:
“Twist No. 1? Sarah Connor isn’t the innocent she was when Linda Hamilton first sported feathered hair and acid-washed jeans in the role. Nor is she Hamilton’s steely zero body-fat warrior in 1991’s T2. Rather, the mother of humanity’s messiah was orphaned by a Terminator at age 9. Since then, she’s been raised by (brace yourself) Schwarzenegger’s Terminator—an older T-800 she calls “Pops”—who is programmed to guard rather than to kill. As a result, Sarah is a highly trained antisocial recluse who’s great with a sniper rifle but not so skilled at the nuances of human emotion.”
Terminator: Genisys is directed by Alan Taylor who has also directed Game of Thrones and Thor: The Dark World. The movie is set to be released in July 2015.
